In order to stop the spread of coronavirus, BC Liquor Stores (BCLS) will be installing Plexiglas barriers at its checkouts across the province.

The company told Daily Hive in an email that this is one of several additional changes BC Liquor Stores is introducing to “protect employees and customers, stem the spread of COVID-19 and deal with staffing constraints.”

The Liquor Distribution Board will be installing the protective shields at locations in Vancouver and on the North Shore first.

Plexiglas will be installed at the BCLS’s remaining outposts over the coming weeks as well.

This is one of several new measures being introduced by BCLS, other changes include all stores starting to close on Sundays, and customers being asked to pack their purchases in bags themselves to limit employee contact.

All stores will remain in operation between 11 am to 7 pm on Mondays through Saturdays.
